Thursday Turris Linkorama

The Blues know they don't have a shot at Turris unless they move up in the draft using their three first round picks, but the St. Louis Post-Dispatch spoke with him anyway.

TSN in Canada might have gotten some good information on Turris, including the fact that he had breakfast with Wayne Gretzky, but someone needs to let them know it's the Kohl Center, not the Cole Center.

The Sporting News asked Turris if Gretzky bought him breakfast. His response? "I can't comment on that because of NCAA rules".

The Cherry Hill Courier-Post indicate the Flyers have had their eye on Turris for a while. The story also has lots of great quotes about Turris from Scouts and GM's, and he is compared to Paul Kariya and Scott Gomez.

The BCHL website addresses some of the rumors out there about which teams covet Turris.

The Charlottetown Guardian interviewed Doug MacLean, former President and GM of the Columbus Blue Jackets who selected Turris first in The Sports Network's 2007 NHL Mock Draft. MacLean compares Turris to Paul Kariya, Steve Yzerman and Joe Sakic.
